timberland sweatshirts Book about Arthur Vandenberg a fascinating read

senator published a memoir with the tongue in cheek title: Al Franken: Giant of the Senate.

However, Michigan once did produce a man who was truly a giant of the Senate, a man crucial to the history of the Cold War but who has been, sadly, largely forgotten.

Arthur Vandenberg did more than anyone to convert the modern Republican Party from isolationism to internationalism during the Second World War. It was he who led a solidly GOP congress to approve the Marshall Plan and the resolution to create NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and shape the bipartisan, stops at the water edge consensus on foreign policy that kept us united throughout the Cold War.

Yet for a variety of reasons, he has been the subject of no major biography assessing his influence. That is, until now.

Hendrik Meijer worked for nearly 30 years on his epic: Arthur Vandenberg: The Man in the Middle of the American Century (University of Chicago Press, US$35) and it is a book and a subject very much worth waiting for.

was always curious about Vandenberg, said Meijer, the 65 year old executive chair of Meijer, Inc, the company that has 200 grocery and department stores throughout six states, mostly in Michigan.

The more he learned, the more fascinated he became with a man who besides his importance, was a complex and intensely fascinating figure personally as well as intellectually.

was always trying to find the middle ground. He was a master of the art of compromise that what he wanted and was born to do. Those are qualities that seem sadly lacking in politics today. Though Vandenberg was one of the world most respected statesmen when he died in 1951, Meijer found that he had been largely forgotten even in his hometown.

Nationally, Vandenberg was also beginning to be forgotten by historians, despite the fact that President Harry Truman, though he didn much like it,

needed Vandenberg during the crucial two years Republicans controlled Congress in the aftermath of the Second World War.

Republicans needed him too. They had been discredited with much of the public since the Great Depression and forging a bipartisan consensus may have helped them return to power.

Vandenberg looked like a typical fat cat of the period; stout, distinguished and white haired, usually in a three piece suit puffing a cigar. But he was also a boy who grew up poor.

He could afford barely a year at the University of Michigan before dropping out and returning to Grand Rapids, where he got a job as a reporter. Senate.

He never left it. But while his image was one of pompous rectitude, the real Vandenberg was anything but a saint; his dalliances included a flamboyant and fairly public affair with Mitzi Sims, the wife of a British diplomat not long before the Second World War.

There has even been speculation that Mitzi may have been assigned to seduce the powerful Vandenberg, then a leader of the isolationists in the Senate, as a way to change his mind about lend lease aid to Great Britain.

There no clear evidence of that, but once war started, Vandenberg did become convinced the United States could no longer go it alone, and helped organize the United Nations.

The cigars that were his trademark may also have been his death sentence; lung cancer spread to his spine. Arthur Vandenberg was only 67 when he died in April 1951.

Had he lived, he would have probably been a major shaping influence in foreign policy in the 1950s. Meijer also thinks Vandenberg might have spurred the Senate to deal faster with the demagogue Sen. Joe McCarthy.

EDITORS NOTE: This release is being updated to reflect the accurate poundage and description of products included in the recall release issued March 19, 2017.

WASHINGTON, March 19, 2017 H B Packing Co., Inc., a Waco, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 79,461 pounds of boneless beef products that may be contaminated with E. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. M13054” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to food manufacturers within the state of Texas.

The problem was discovered when FSIS was notified by the State of Texas’ Meat Safety Assurance Unit about a positive non O157 Shiga toxin producing E. coli sample.

There have been no confirmed reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products.

Many clinical laboratories do not test for non O157 Shiga toxin producing E. coli (STEC), such as STEC O103 because it is harder to identify than STEC O157. People can become ill from STECs 2 8 days (average of 3 4 days) after consuming the organism. Most people infected with STEC O103 develop diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting. Some illnesses last longer and can be more severe. Infection is usually diagnosed by testing of a stool sample. Vigorous rehydration and other supportive care is the usual treatment; antibiotic treatment is generally not recommended.

Most people recover within a week, but, rarely, some develop a more severe infection. Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is uncommon with STEC O103 infection. HUS can occur in people of any age but is most common in children under 5 years old, older adults and persons with weakened immune systems. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

Customers who have purchased these products are urged not to use them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground meat that has been cooked to a temperature of 160? F. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

brown timberland boots Bollinger’s 2016 Convocation Address

This is a very special occasion for all of us, and I want to say to the parents and families we know how thrilling this moment is, and how poignant. To the undergraduates it couldn’t be a better time to go to college and to be at Columbia. There are so many things I could talk about today: the global footprint of Columbia, the opportunities you face, that there’s a new campus opening this year for the first time in over a hundred years campus buildings designed by Renzo Piano and Liz Diller and that you’ll be able to see that unfold in the time that you’re here and for decades after that. In many ways, this is a great time.

Jim Valentini and Mary Boyce are fantastic deans. They are deeply caring, very accomplished scholars, and they are here really to help you. I’d like to also recognize David Madigan, the executive vice president for Arts Sciences, who oversees all of this, but especially works with the great Columbia faculty who are going to be your teachers and colleagues.

Every year at this time, we welcome a new group of students, like you, to our academic community. I can assure you it never, ever gets old, and it never feels like business as usual. There is a freshness you bring, and for some reason no one has quite figured out, you’re always smarter and more accomplished already than others who have come before. Remember, however, there will be others coming after you, about whom the same will be said. It is not defining in the way that a birth or a marriage is instantly life changing, but rather defining in a more gradual, almost imperceptible way. This is a period of life when your intellectual character will be shaped, and to a considerable extent, determined. You are about to experience the world of knowledge and of the life of the mind in ways you can only barely glimpse from this vantage point. But I can assure you that by the end you will be a different person, not only in all that you will know compared to what you know now, but more importantly in how you will think in the world the basis of your intellectual character.

To be at Columbia is to exist in a world where virtually every human thought ever conceived is open to study, examination, consideration, acceptance, rejection, debate, and analysis. To be sure, we have standards that guide us as we move through this vast wilderness of the human mind we insist on notions like reason, fact, nonpartisanship but nothing is off bounds for intellectual inquiry.

Over the past couple of years, there have been a number of controversies on campuses all over the country, including ours, which were all more or less about speech the speech of fellow students, of residence hall administrators, of faculty, of institutions through the naming of buildings and the display of pictures, and of outside people invited to the campus no doubt you have heard and read about these. The debate, in part, was about what to do about speech that was considered offensive or dangerous. Sometimes there were calls for bans on speech and official punishments.

I do not want to enter into a discussion about any of these specific issues. I do, however, want to make two overarching points. The first is about proposals to stop speech from happening on campus, officially or through private acts of disruption. The rules of the road here are very clear. Even though a private institution (Columbia is a private university) is not subject to the First Amendment (only actions by the state are covered by the First Amendment), all private universities, including Columbia, have voluntarily chosen to live by First Amendment principles.

The First Amendment as we know it today, in this country, is not all that old in fact, when you are in your senior year here, the nation will celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the first Supreme Court decision interpreting freedom of speech. And, while it has ebbed and flowed in the scope of protection for speech over that period, in the past half century, we have all come to a pretty clear position, rather unique among nations: with extremely few exceptions, speech that is about or relevant to public issues and the search for truth, broadly interpreted, is fully protected against censorship,
timberland online Bollinger's 2016 Convocation Address
no matter how offensive or dangerous it might seem to you and me and a majority of the citizens of this country. In this case, what’s true for the country is also true for Columbia. We don’t ban speech. We don’t censor speech.

Now, I do not for a second want you to think that this is a simple, clear cut, self evident principle or policy. You hear a lot of people these days talking as if this were all perfectly obvious and no reasonable person could believe otherwise. I have spent a good part of my life trying to understand why this approach is indeed the right and sound way to structure a society or a university. But I can assure you, it is highly complicated. Nevertheless, it is the choice it is our choice and you should know that at this University, you cannot expect the institution to intervene, to stop thoughts or viewpoints many of us may dislike, and deeply so. And we will not let others do what we cannot.

At the same time, we cannot just leave it there. Just because we cannot and will not stop or censor expression does not mean we will or should do nothing; that we are powerless. Indeed the burden we impose on ourselves for foregoing censorship is the responsibility to engage the debate. We can express counterviews, give reasons why the contrary view was wrong, offensive, and dangerous. We can be upset and angry, organize an opposition, ignore or shun a speaker, or deploy humor to deflect injury. We can also listen, reflect, reconsider, and forgive. To say that we can’t ban speech is, in a sense, easy. To say what follows next is hard very, very, hard.

And there’s the point: how you grapple with ideas, with thoughts and viewpoints in the myriad of ways available to you will determine who you are. You will never completely resolve this process. It is too complex for rules or clear guides. You will make many errors. You will feel embarrassed looking back. Or proud and hope you can replicate what you did before. Will you be confident in your beliefs, yet open to alternative perspectives? Courageous when confronting evil, or weak and fearful? Able to change your mind when evidence and reason call for a change? Or stubborn and myopic about things you just don’t like or can’t refute? In all this, you will compose who you are. In this open environment, created indeed, created for this purpose by the First Amendment for the society, and by the University for you and for the search for truth. That’s the best rationale we have for our no censorship approach in life. We’re thrown into the deep waters of life, and we have the opportunity to be better at dealing with the world as it is.

There are two final points I’d like to make. The first is: as you grapple with all of this, you should bear in mind something about ourselves, about human nature, that most thoughtful people on this subject have concluded, which is that we are not naturally disposed to be open minded, to be tolerant, and willing to engage with the thoughts that are foreign to us, contrary to our own beliefs and views and challenging. Our natural instinct is to preserve our own ways of thinking, whatever they happen to be. We can avoid discourse. We prefer to associate with those who reinforce our own ways of thinking, and we fear the uncertainty of not knowing what or how to believe. This does not mean that everything you believe now or in the future is presumptively wrong. It just means you should always reflect carefully, and a bit suspiciously, about how you are responding.

The second point and last point is this: in the university world, our basic intellectual inquiry emphasizes habits of mind that we think increase the odds that we will discover new ideas and truths. We stress being able to suspend our beliefs, to embrace self doubt, to take joy in learning that we were wrong, to welcome knowing what is not true as another step towards knowing what is true, to be articulate about ideas, to relish complexity, and to use reason while knowing its limits. We have all these qualities, to an extreme, and we know that. To some extent, it makes us ill suited for the world outside. But, we ask you, while you are here, to join us in these special qualities of intellect. It may be your only chance in life to see what’s possible with them in mind.

In these years ahead, you will make friends, find loved ones, have fun, but above all else you will become the person you choose in this ever bustling, never sleeping,

BOISE A hours long standoff ended late Monday night when a suspect hiding in the attic of a Boise home fell through the ceiling and was taken into custody.

The woman said she and Larson had in the driveway of a house in the 3900 block of West Leland Way when he threatened her, but she was able to leave and call 911.

The sheriff’s office determined that Larson was still inside the Leland Way house, and was armed. Deputies set up a perimeter around the house and tried to talk to Larson, who was the only person in the home, but did not get a response from him.

Deputies were in contact with the people in the homes near the standoff and asked those residents to shelter in place until it was over.

The sheriff’s office received permission from the home’s owner to go inside, and sent in a robot to try and figure out where Larson was in the house.

At that point,

Larson fell through the ceiling of the home onto the ground below, where he was taken into custody by deputies just before midnight. Larson told investigators he had had the gun in his waistband earlier that day.

He was arrested and booked into the Ada County Jail on felony charges of aggravated assault, drug possession, probation violation, and being a felon in possession of a gun, along with misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and resisting and obstructing.

timberland earthkeepers review Boeing gets thumbs up to bid on new fighter jets

aerospace giant insists it still hasn decided whether it will actually bid.

The federal government revealed on Thursday that Boeing, which makes the Super Hornet jet, was one of five companies approved as potential bidders in the upcoming competition to deliver 88 new fighters.

Companies had been given until Feb. 9 to indicate whether they were interested in participating in the competition, which the government will formally launch early next year after several rounds of consultations with industry.

Boeing Super Hornet was once considered the front runner to win the upcoming competition after the Liberals promised not to purchase the F 35 a promise they have since backed away from and moved to buy 18 Super Hornets.

But that was before Boeing trade dispute with Canadian rival Bombardier saw the Liberals in November scrap their plan to buy Super Hornets and instead begin talks to buy 18 used fighter jets from Australia.

The government also warned that companies deemed to be hurting Canada economic interests would be penalized when competing for military contracts a new provision that many saw as a direct shot at Boeing over the Bombardier dispute.

Analysts had questioned the legality of such a provision and wondered how the government would account for the fact Boeing employs about 2,000 people in Canada and contributes around $4 billion to the economy each year.

timberland nellie boots body switched at funeral home

A Nova Scotia family grieving the loss of a relative said they were stunned when they went to a local funeral home for her service only to be presented with the bodies of two other women and then told their loved one had accidentally been cremated.

Relatives of Sandra Bennett say they arrived at the Serenity Funeral Home in Berwick on Dec. 27 for a visitation following her death a week earlier after a prolonged illness.

Dominey and her daughter, JoAnne, said staff at the funeral home insisted the woman in the casket was in fact Bennett. When they realized it wasn the family says they were presented with another body in the casket purchased by Bennett husband, Gary.

“(I thought) this can be true. This is something you hear about on a TV show or somewhere in the States, but not in a small community,” JoAnne Dominey said from her mother home.

“No one needs to go through this, especially over the holidays. It hard enough losing a loved one without this happening. I wouldn want anyone else to go through this.”

JoAnne Dominey said the family was then told Bennett was mistakenly cremated. But, she says it not clear that the ashes they were given were actually those of Bennett.

“They weren sure if it was even her ashes,” she said. “We still don know.”

Serenity Funeral Home did not respond to a request for comment.

Gary Bennett did not want to comment on the matter, saying it was too emotional and “like going through a nightmare.”

His lawyer, Paul Walter, said in an email that his firm was in the process of gathering information and arranging meetings with affected family members.

“This has been unquestionably, an horrific experience for Gary and his family an experience that no grieving family should ever have to go through,” he said in the email.

“We intend to take all appropriate legal measures to ensure that the individuals whom we represent are fully and fairly compensated for the negative impact this ordeal has had and continues to have on their lives.”

The agency that regulates funeral homes in Nova Scotia is investigating the bizarre mix up and says it is likely the first time they have looked into such a case.

Adam Tipert, chairman of the Nova Scotia Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors, said they are examining how the home handled Bennett remains and ultimately how the 65 year old woman was cremated, despite wishes from her family that that not take place.

Tipert said they were notified of the matter by the funeral home and are in the preliminary stages of gathering information on the chain of custody for her body, what discussions were held with the family and what documentation was in place.

He said multiple documents are required for a legal cremation and that they explicitly spell out what the wishes are for the deceased.

“Clearly what we dealing with here is human error, so you can have all the permits and documents in the right order but if you putting them with the wrong remains . they can guarantee that you still have the right body,” he said. “There room for error.”

Tipert said the priority for the board, which mandates professional conduct for the sector, is the welfare of the families affected by the unusual mix up while trying to ensure it does not happen again.

“The funeral sector is granted a responsibility of lending professional guidance and direction to families at the most difficult time and when an error like this occurs it has certainly removed the opportunity for them to properly grieve,” he said. “It very difficult for the families and that why the board wants to take an active approach in looking into what the possible outcomes might be.”

Item Type:ArticleItem Status:Live ArchiveAbstractA core feature of anorexia nervosa is an over estimation of body size. However, quantifying this over estimation has been problematic as existing methodologies introduce a series of artefacts and inaccuracies in the stimuli used for judgements of body size. To overcome these problems, we have: (i) taken 3D scans of 15 women who have symptoms of anorexia (referred to henceforth as anorexia spectrum disorders, ANSD) and 15 healthy control women,

(ii) used a 3D modelling package to build avatars from the scans, (iii) manipulated the body shapes of these avatars to reflect biometrically accurate, continuous changes in body mass index (BMI), (iv) used these personalized avatars as stimuli to allow the women to estimate their body size. The results show that women who are currently receiving treatment for ANSD show an over estimation of body size which rapidly increases as their own BMI increases. By contrast,

Search and rescue crews are looking for 24 year old Michael Purdy in Alaska’s Denali National Park. (National Park Service) KOIN 6 News Staff PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) Search and rescue crews found the body of a missing Portland hiker Sunday along a trail in the Denali National Park and Preserve.

Michael Purdy’s remains were found near the north end of the Savage River Loop Trail, the National Park Service said. Clues on the scene indicate he diverted from the riverside trail to do some scrambling on higher terrain.

That’s when he reportedly fell and suffered a fatal head injury.

The 24 year old embarked on a multi day hiking trip last week before starting a summer jobwith Denali ATV Tours in Healy, Alaska,the National Park Service said.

Park rangers found Purdy’s car atSavage East parking lot and determined it had been there since Tuesday,

April 26. His overnight backpacking gear, food and supplies were reportedly in the car when it was found.

His last known cell phone calls were made to his employer on April 26. Margaret and Heally Ridge.

Five ground teams with 15 searchers and one search and rescue dog were sent across the same areas, according to the National Park Service.

The area is described as having steep, brushy terrain with some snowy patches.

Weather over the past week has reportedly been mild and clear with little rain. Daytime temperatures have been between 50 and 55 degrees and freezing overnight.

Friends and family described Purdy as an adventurous, experienced back country hiker. He wasfamiliar with the park and usually keptin contact whiletraveling.

kids timberland jackets Body of lost hiker found in North Shore backcountry

timberland city adventure Body of lost hiker found in North Shore backcountry

“It’s sad news and our condolences go out to his family,” said Doug Pope, North Shore Rescue search manager.

Jin’s parents reported him missing to Vancouver police on Jan. 3. The last they had heard from him was a text message on Dec. 31 saying he was going for a hike. It wasn’t until police searched his computer and found that he had been researching North Shore backcountry hikes that North Shore Rescue became involved on Jan. 5.

“We were well behind the Eight Ball by then. Five days out in the wilderness in a cold, snowy environment doesn’t leave us a lot of chance of getting a good outcome,” Pope said. “Likely he had already passed away by the time we started looking for him.”

The coroner is still investigating the exact cause of death but Pope said it was likely due to exposure. It appears Jin crawled under a boulder to seek shelter, Pope said.

The search effort for Jin lasted weeks and at one point, North Shore Rescue members were called in to save two friends of the Jin family who had continued the search on their own in dangerous conditions, against the advice of team leader Mike Danks. Jin’s body was about 300 metres southwest of the team’s helipad near Crown Pass, well north of Grouse Mountain.

“We had dogs in there. We were very close to that location. It just shows the difficulty in trying to locate an unresponsive subject in winter conditions and not visible from the air,” Pope said.

While the team is primarily sad for Jin’s family, North Shore Rescue members also take these losses personally as well,
kids timberland jackets Body of lost hiker found in North Shore backcountry
Pope said. Team members put in about 300 volunteer hours in the search.

“You can’t help but think ‘What could we have done better to help find him and get that closure for the family?’ but, I think we did our very best and every member should be proud at the effort we put in,” he said,

Jin’s disappearance was eerily similar to that of Tom Billings, the British tourist who was last seen headed for Lynn Headwaters Regional Park in Nov. 2013. That also triggered a massive search. North Shore Rescue has been in touch with his family.

“They were going to hear things in media about something going on so we kept in contact with them as well,” he said.

While there are thankfully very few fatalities in the backcountry, this one serves as a sad reminder about the risk of going into the backcountry unprepared, Pope said.

Rescuers would have had a fighting chance had Jin left his exact plans and expected time of return with his family, allowing the effort to get under way much sooner, Pope said. And, even though there is little or no cell phone coverage in that area,

The body of America’s first serial killer is being exhumed in suburban Philadelphia to dispel centuries old rumours that he conned his way out of his execution and escaped prison.

Dr Henry H Holmes, an infamous killer and conman in Chicago in the 19th century, was hanged on May 7, 1896 in Philadelphia after a life of horrific crimes.

His great great grandchildren have now been granted permission by a Delaware County judge to dig up the wealthy, well educated killer’s remains, according to the Daily Mail.

Holmes, who was born Herman Webster Mudgett in 1861 in New Hampshire, was widely rumoured to have killed about 200 people. Holmes began working at a pharmacy in the area but eventually took over the business when the original owner died and his wife mysteriously disappeared.

He purchased a vacant lot of land across from the drugstore and started constructing what eventually became his three story hotel of horrors.

When the murder castle was completed in 1891, Holmes placed lodging ads in newspapers to draw in unsuspecting women to stay with him.

Guests and employees were required to have life insurance policies and most were never seen again once they entered the hotel.

Robb Sharp says he didn’t have to think for long when he was asked if he wanted to open a show in Sarnia by Grammy winning blues artist Bobby Rush.

Rush is definitely one I get to check off my bucket list, Sharp said.

The leader of the Sarnia band Lit’l Chicago said they’ve added a second horn player for their opening slot at the Aug. 12 show at The Station Music Hall.

puts on just a screamer of a show, Sharp said about Rush.

kind of harkens back to the old days of the Ike and Tina Turner Review, with the dancers up there . . . it’s a riot. Sarnia stop by Rush include options for a barbecue dinner, and a VIP meet and greet for ticket buyers, along with the show at The Station Music Hall on Campbell Street. and tickets are available online at, and at ticket outlets around Sarnia.

Rush has won a dozen Blues Music Awards over the years, and received this year’s Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album.

it comes to real, true blues men from the south, he’s one of the last still standing and still performing, said show promoter James Doran, of Choose The Blues Productions.

Rush performs incredible energy, Doran said.

83 now,

and he sure doesn’t look it. visit like this to southwestern Ontario is rare for Rush, Doran said.

only doing three shows this year in Canada, that I’m aware of. was born Emmet Ellis, Jr., in Louisiana and adopted a stage name out of respect for his father, a church pastor.

daddy never told me to sing the blues, but he also didn’t tell me not to sing the blues, Rush has said.

took that as a green light. built his first guitar when he was still a child, after seeing a picture of one in a magazine.

didn’t know where to buy one, even if I had the money, he said in a new release for his Grammy winning album, Porcupine Meat.

timberland outlets Blues still hopeful of Edin Dzeko deal as Olivier Giroud and Fernando Llorente emerge as alternatives

Chelsea remain hopeful of landing a deal for Roma striker Edin Dzeko but are now looking at Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud and Tottenham’s Fernando Llorente as alternatives, Goal understands.

The Blues have been afterDzeko for much of the winter window, but talkshave stalled for now as all three parties have been unable to come to any agreements.

Dzeko was seen as likely to be added this January alongside team mate Emerson Palmieri, but for now the striker remains in Italy despite being keen on a move to Stamford Bridgewhile Emerson will undergo a medical ahead of a 17.5 million move.

As the window winds down, the Blues are looking at alternatives to Dzeko, with a possible opportunity to land London rivals Arsenal’s Giroud arriving via an unlikely source.

Michy Batshuayi has been angling for a loan move away from Chelsea, but has not been allowed to leave until the Blues find a new striker to replace him in the rotation. But in an interesting twist, the Belgian being granted a loan may well help land his replacement in Giroud.

The Gunners appear near to a deal to land Pierre Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund . However,
timberland boots size chart Blues still hopeful of Edin Dzeko deal as Olivier Giroud and Fernando Llorente emerge as alternatives
the Bundesliga side look more interested in securing the services of Batshuayi as a replacement for the Gabon international, rather than Giroud.

That has opened the door for Giroud to join the Premier League champions, with the striker eager for a move while the Gunners remain reluctant.

Another option is Spurs striker Llorente, who Antonio Conte was interested in a reunion with prior to his move to Tottenham.

Llorente would also welcome a change of scenery as he hopes to secure more playing time than he has seen with Maurico Pochettino’s side this season. He has appeared in 13 Premier League games this year for Spurs, though he has only started on one occasion, scoring a single goal.

While the Blues do look at alternatives, they have not yet given up the pursuit of Dzeko. Chelsea hopethe pressure of the transfer deadline can help a deal get over the finish line, though it is likely it will go right down to the wire.

Over the past year a Blue Lake mother and son have been putting their heads together to create Karuk language memes as a means of spreading their love of the language.

Susan Gehr said her 11 year old son Logan Gehr is internet culture savvy so he comes up with the ideas for the memes and she translates and posts them on her Instagram account and other social media sites.

Internet memes often pictures or videos with superimposed text that represent running jokes in online communities are commonly shared on sites such as Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more.

started doing them because of Logan, Susan Gehr said.

She said she wanted to pass the language on to him.

I was doing it in a fun way he would be more involved, Susan Gehr said.

She said his enthusiasm for online culture engaged him in this learning while being entertained.

Logan Gehr said he been learning the Karuk language for a while but this has accelerated that learning.

learning more, he said.

means just or well, she said about the word Karuk language is steeped in oral tradition. To account for this, Susan Gehr has been adding sound to her memes so people can hear how the word is spoken.

An F/A 18 Legacy Hornet jetted across the skies over the Texas State Technical College airport Wednesday in a promotion for the Heart of Texas Air Show, scheduled for April 7 and 8. Navys premier flight demonstration team last visited Waco in the 1980s and will return next year for its only performance in Central and North Texas.

All these people in Central Texas are going to get to see the Blue Angels in a place they havent been able to in a long time, Blue Angels pilot Lt. Andre Webb said. This will be awesome for the folks who live in Waco and I am sure for people from far away who will be able to come out and see our show.

Webb grew up in Oklahoma and lived in Texas for a while as a flight student and later instructor.

ebay timberland boots BLP mulls future Shiras closure

earthkeepers timberland BLP mulls future Shiras closure

The Shiras Steam Plant is a coal fired power plant located along South Lake Street in Marquette. (Journal photo by Rachel Oakley)

MARQUETTE The Marquette Board of Light and Power has, in one fell $65 million swoop, gone from losing firm power from the grid and skirting a crisis, to now having more generating capacity than it ever likely to need.

Developments in understanding the BLP power supply are showing the Shiras coal fired steam plant may no longer be a cost effective generating asset in the long term, BLP officials are saying.

Acting Executive Director Tom Carpenter gave a presentation to the BLP Board of Directors Tuesday afternoon on the utility power supply plan, offering an updated overview of generation and planning, and clarifying some possible misconceptions, he said.

Carpenter said the biggest question he gets asked is changed? The BLP is now able to use energy from the grid, when two to three years ago, that wasn possible, he said. So what changed?

changed, by putting this in, Carpenter said, referring to the new Marquette Energy Center and its three natural gas fueled generating engines, which can turn off and on in five minutes.

Before the MEC, the Shiras unit 3 was a must run generating asset.

had a single point of failure, and then we relied on the grid, Carpenter explained.

Back in the winters of 2012 and 2013, Carpenter said the BLP came close to a crisis, and that what started the conversation about contingencies and building the MEC.

was down here at Shiras when we got some of these calls. We had Shiras 3 offline for maintenance, relying on the grid to supply all of our power, Carpenter said. they called and said, need to cut you off because we don have enough. That was the big driver for (the MEC), because we went to start (the plant 4 substation), and it didn start. We went to start it again, and it didn start. And we were five minutes from cutting the whole town off, black. BLP fuel oil fired combustion turbine at the plant 4 substation is nearly 40 years old and used only during emergencies, according to the BLP website.

back in 2014, they told us we couldn have firm transmission (from the grid), so we decided that we weren comfortable relying on the grid in case there was a failure with (Shiras) unit 3, Carpenter said. we put the MEC in. Now probably the most important thing that people need to understand is that our world flipped 180 (degrees) when we put the MEC in. most important difference between the three units at the MEC and Shiras 3 is how quickly they can start, he said. Shiras takes more than 12 hours to warm up, meaning the grid was only being used as a contingency when Shiras went offline.

But now, since the MEC engines can start in five minutes, that power is available whenever the price point is right meaning whenever it costs less than running the MEC.

if we ride on the grid, which we been doing for almost a month now at night and all weekend long, if we have a failure of that source of power, we can bounce right to the MEC in five minutes, Carpenter said.

As it stands now, the BLP itself can generate a total of 124 megawatts of electricity much more than the BLP peak load of 68 MW in 2007, and the average hourly load of 39 MW.

Each of the three engines at the MEC can generate 17 MW; the plant 4 substation combustion turbine can generate 25 MW; Shiras 3 can generate 44 MW; and renewable energy contributes 4 MW.

With the Midcontinent Independent System Operator the grid the BLP can obtain up to 93 MW.

With the MISO grid and the BLP independent generating assets, the BLP has a total generating capacity of 217 MW. That more than five times the average hourly load, and more than three times the peak load of 68 MW in 2007. Meanwhile, peak and average loads are shrinking steadily every year.

The concept of whether or not the BLP can trust the grid doesn matter anymore, Carpenter said, because covered. We have choices.

A recent in depth study by engineering firm Burns and McDonnell has given a much clearer picture of costs and benefits of different scenarios heading into the future.

The cost of running the different assets varies, with Shiras costing $55 per hour, the MEC costing about $35 and the grid about $32, Carpenter said.

With the amount of capacity available, it becoming clear that operating Shiras will in the long term be more costly than beneficial.

The power supply study made that clear, with preliminary numbers showing the utility could save $3 million per year by not running Shiras, BLP officials have said.

With these developments, electric rates are due to stabilize into the future, Carpenter said.

Also important to note is that in the month that the MEC has been online, the utility is saving significantly more money than anticipated by being able to switch back and forth to the grid, Carpenter said. And the utility could get access to firm power back as soon as 2019, due to routine improvements to the MISO grid, he said.

Jenn Hill, an independent energy consultant, said the presentation raised interesting questions about how the BLP planned for generation and how to plan for management in the future.

is really important information, and I think it going to be incredibly valuable and going forward, Hill said.

John Prince, owner of JP Electric and candidate running for the BLP board in November, said he understands the angst in the community about shutting down Shiras, but that the BLP needs to be actively mobile in looking to the future, and not rest on old plans.

Slusser is from Montour Township near Bloomsburg.

According to social media accounts, she’s a college student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania where she is studying marketing, but officials with the university say they have no record of her being enrolled there.

“I haven’t seen her in a while and I asked my wife recently you know, I wonder where she could be, but I didn’t know she was part of the front page of the paper recently,” said Ken Conner of Montour Township.

Police are investigating whether Slusser may have been sighted at a truck stop in the Mifflinville area, too.

They say she may be the victim of a sex ring; they believe she may have been trafficked against her will.

Newswatch 16 tried to speak with Slusser’s mother, but she was not home.

We spoke with people who live in the neighborhood near Bloomsburg.

“That’s sad. That’s sad because her mother is a very nice person. It’s too bad,” said neighbor Jean Derr.

Neighbors say they are praying Slusser is found soon and found safe for her sake and her family’s sake.

“The fact that she’s in New York City, you know, is of itself a very scary situation. I’m familiar with the city and anything can happen. It’s tragic, you know,
womens white timberland boots Bloomsburg Area Teen
and where do you look?” said Ken Conner.

Slusser’s mother recently told the New York Post she is praying for her daughter’s safe return and even for her daughter’s captors.

Nobody ever tried to ban our flag even though you were our colony when the word was hip. Noticed that Detroit is in ruins. Good, when your paying jobs leave and you have to work two crappy ones with no vacation just to make ends meet? Or, if you stare at your phone all day believing drivel spouted by some nancy that wants to touch your kids and the truth comes out after years of cover because you need to concentrate on a concept from the 1860 instead of what is really happening today? That big burning ball in the sky will not set on this empire.

Every once in a while, a dick needs to get clipped at a Motel 6. Case en pointe. Take the time to teach your young how to defend themselves from abject situations. Whether it be through simple conversation or teaching them how to fight or avoid the evils that populate our world. Transfer of physical and thought processes are the only way your work in this life will succeed. What do you get when you plant potatoes? Hopefully not flowers. Best wishes that she makes it home. A person with a weapon is less of a victim.

If it turns out she was abducted, fine. Obviously terrible etc and I hope they find her quickly. But with lack of any evidence cited, this piece (and of course the comments it generates) is a (racist) disgrace. may be in NYC. Not clear. She be the victim of a sex ring Again no evidence. So while I hope she is safe, given the lack of information, the following scenario happens every day: she dated and fell in love with, for example, a black/brown man. Her parents freaked out and she ran off with him to avoid further arguments with her parents. Her racist parents call this abduction, victim of a sex ring etc. Neither I (and according to this story), nor nobody knows the truth, so let wait for the truth before trotting out the racist comments it is just as possible they should be pointing blame in the other direction.

girls timberland boots Blood loss from lab testing associated with hospital

timberland steel toe cap boots Blood loss from lab testing associated with hospital

In patients with acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), blood loss from greater use of phlebotomy (blood drawn for diagnostic testing) appears to be independently associated with the development of hospital acquired anemia (HAA), according to a report published Online First by Archives of Internal Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. The article is part of the journal’s Less Is More series. Anemia (low red blood cell count or low hemoglobin level) is associated with greater mortality and worse health status in patients with AMI, whether the condition is chronic (present at hospital admission) or hospital acquired, according to background information in the article. However, HAA may be preventable if strategies to reduce blood loss in high risk patients are implemented. Among the factors that may be associated with HAA is blood loss from diagnostic phlebotomy, which has been associated in other patient populations with in hospital declines in hemoglobin level and need for blood transfusion.

Adam C. Records selected from January 2000 through December 2008 included 17,676 patients who were admitted with AMI and no anemia from 57 hospitals. To measure blood loss, the researchers identified all phlebotomy events in patient records. They determined, by the laboratory tests ordered, which type of hematology tubes were used and the blood volume each held. Then, for every patient, the researchers multiplied these blood volumes by the number of tubes of each type that were collected during hospitalization. They also calculated the mean (average) blood drawn for every 24 hours of hospitalization and the mean phlebotomy volumes for each of the first 10 days of hospitalization.

About 20 percent of patients (n = 3,551) developed moderate to severe HAA. Estimates of the mean blood loss from phlebotomy for these patients (173.8 milliliters [mL]) were almost 100 mL higher than estimated blood loss in patients who did not develop moderate to severe HAA (83.5 mL) over the course of the hospitalization. The volume of diagnostic blood drawn was associated with developing moderate to severe HAA. The relative risk for developing HAA increased by 18 percent for each 50 mL of blood drawn; the relationship persisted when researchers adjusted the data for site and potential confounders. The average volume of blood drawn varied significantly across hospitals. “Studies are needed to test whether strategies that limit both the number of blood draws and the volume of blood removed for diagnostic testing can prevent HAA and improve clinical outcomes in patients with AMI.”

(Arch Intern Med. Published online August 8, 2011. doi:10.1001/archinternmed.2011.361. Salisbury, Spertus and Kosiborod are funded in part by an award from the American Heart Association Pharmaceutical Round Table and David and Stevie Spina. “Of particular interest was the finding that the mean phlebotomy volume in patients varied widely across individual hospitals, suggesting that some blood tests may have simply been ‘routine’ and implying that reduction in the variability of care could potentially lead to reductions in HAA,” Rennke and Fang write.

They cite increased attention to patient safety since the publication of an Institute of Medicine report on the topic in 1999. This focus, Rennke and Fang explain, “has led hospitals to test and implement system wide interventions, some of which have been found to be effective in reducing the rates of hospital acquired complications.” As an example, they point to a Michigan Health and Hospital Association Keystone program which appeared to reduce rates of hospital acquired infections and subsequent hospital deaths. “As Salisbury et al highlight in their study, HAA could potentially be considered a hazard of hospitalization.

SPICER, Minn. Wearing ice covered boots and wiping away icicles from beards and noses, a crew of about 40 people were busy Wednesday, Jan. 3, harvesting massive ice blocks from Green Lake near Spicer.

Prized for the crystal clear ice that reflects a blue hue as the sun filters through the bitter cold air, the 573 pound blocks of Green Lake ice will be the jewels used to build a 70 foot tall ice castle in St. Paul for the Winter Carnival.

St. Paul’s annual winter celebration will be extended an extra week this year from Jan. 25 to Feb. 10 to coincide with Super Bowl festivities in Minneapolis.

Knowing that the ice castle will likely draw nationwide attention with the Super Bowl next month, the crew of local and metro workers on Green Lake are putting their heart and soul into a very cold job.

“It’s going great. The people around town have been awesome,” said Mike Gutknecht, from Park Construction, the general contractor for the project.

“The people have been great to work with and the spirit of the crew is they want to do this,” he said. They want to be part of this.”

Maneuvering around a gaping hole of open water that starts to freeze once activity stops, the job of harvesting the ice from the lake is done by the Wee Kut Ice Company, owned by Mike Lint, Bruce Nelson and Gideon Doty three friends from the New London and Spicer communities.

The trio has been harvesting ice for festivals and cutting holes in lakes for polar plunge events since 1991.

“Work is a little slow in the summertime,” quipped Nelson.

Wee Kut had originally been contacted to provide about 35,000 blocks of ice for the St. Paul castle, but when funds fell short and the plan was scrapped, the company took on other commitments to make an ice castle in Spicer and Detroit Lakes.

When last minute funding came through for a smaller St. Paul ice castle requiring about 4,000 blocks, Wee Kut debated whether or not they had time to get the job done.

Being part of a once in a lifetime Super Bowl event that would put their home community on the map convinced them to do it.

On Monday, they cleared snow away from about a two acre section of Green Lake at the public boat access on North Shore Drive near Spicer.

On Tuesday they moved out the equipment and began test runs of the process before putting in a full day Wednesday.

timberland safety boot Blizzard rolls up the East Coast

3, 2018. A brutal winter storm smacked the coastal Southeast with a rare blast of snow and ice. 3, 2018. A brutal winter storm smacked the coastal Southeast with a rare blast of snow and ice.

SUSAN HAIGH, The Associated Press BOSTON (AP) A massive winter storm roared into the East Coast on Thursday, dumping as much as 17 inches of snow in some areas and unleashing hurricane force winds and historic flooding that closed schools and offices and halted transportation from the Carolinas to Maine.

Forecasters expected the storm to be followed immediately by a blast of face stinging cold that could break records in more than two dozen cities and bring wind chills as low as minus 40 degrees this weekend.

Blizzard warnings and states of emergency were in wide effect, and wind gusts hit more than 70 mph (113 kph) in places. In parts of New England, snow fell as fast as 3 inches per hour. Another fatality was reported near Philadelphia when a car could not stop at the bottom of a steep, snow covered hill and slammed into a commuter train. A passenger in the vehicle was killed. No one on the train was hurt.

In New Jersey, Orlando Igmat’s car got stuck in a snowbank along the Garden State Parkway in Tinton Falls as he drove to work at Verizon. He waited a half hour for a tow truck to pull him out.

“I didn’t expect it (the storm) was going to be a heavy one. That’s why I went to work today. I’m going to stay in a hotel tonight,” he said.

More than 100,000 homes and businesses lost power at some point Thursday. While many outages were restored by the day’s end, officials from the mid Atlantic to New England warned that those numbers might climb again as strong wind gusts and frigid temperatures continue through Saturday.

In New England, the powerful winds brought coastal flooding that reached historic levels in areas. The frigid waters overwhelmed fishing piers, streets and restaurants, and stranded people in homes and cars, prompting dozens of evacuations and rescues.

In Portland, Maine, the high tide nearly matched the 14.17 feet reported during the infamous Blizzard of 1978 that walloped the Northeast.

In Boston, icy harbor waters poured into downtown streets near popular tourist and business areas. The National Weather Service said the waters reached “within a few tenths of an inch” of record levels and local officials across coastal Massachusetts braced for further tidal surges.

“We saw the water going over the sea wall, which was really scary,” said Boston resident Sonia Calderon. “I don’t know what kind of damage that’s going to cause, but it’s a little scary just to think about it.”

Mayor Marty Walsh said some of the areas hadn’t seen flooding in 30 years. “If anyone wants to question global warming, just see where the flood zones are,” the Democrat remarked.

Schools, businesses and ferry services in parts of the Canadian coast were also shut down. Nova Scotia Power said it had more than 1,000 people at the ready in its biggest ever pre storm mobilization of personnel and resources.

The flight tracking site FlightAware reported more than 5,000 canceled flights across the United States. Those included more than two thirds of flights in and out of New York City and Boston airports.

Rail service was affected too. Amtrak operated a modified schedule between New York and Boston.

Some people took the weather in stride.

Mark Schoenenberger, a 45 year old NASA engineer who lives in Norfolk, Virginia, put on his cross country skis so he could make a half hour trip to the bagel shop for some breakfast for his family.

“It’s like ‘Yay, I get to go out,” he said.

The only concern he seemed to have was telecommuting while his kids were home from school. But “it’s just noise,” he said.

Waiting just behind the storm was a wave of bracing cold.

The National Weather Service said record low temperatures were predicted for 28 major cities across the northeast by dawn Sunday.

Boston expected a low around minus 11 overnight Saturday into Sunday. Portland, Maine, and Burlington, Vermont, could see minus 16 and 19, respectively, the weather service said.

The massive storm began two days ago in the Gulf of Mexico and first struck the Florida Panhandle.

Some meteorologists described it as a “bomb cyclone,” a term that comes from the process of bombogensis, when the barometric pressure drops steeply in a short period.

As the storm wound its way through the Deep South early Thursday, it brought plummeting temperatures that caused highways closures in South Carolina and water main breaks in Mississippi.

Mississippi’s largest city, Jackson, was put under a precautionary boil water notice and portable toilets were placed outside the state Capitol because some of the toilets would not flush.

timberland knee high boots Blisters most common problem at CMA Fest so far

NASHVILLE, Tenn.(WKRN) Tourist Zaenna Echevarria is in Nashville from Pennsylvania for the CMA Fest. She told News 2 that Friday was day two of breaking in her new boots.

“Everyone is wearing boots, so I feel like I had to join in,” said Echevarria.

She is paying the price for fashion as one of several people who had to be treated for blisters on their feet by Vanderbilt doctors Friday because of their stylish new boots.

Doctors told News 2 that, so far, feet blisters have been the most common problem they have treated at the CMA Fest and it can get bad.”You can definitely get some pretty serious infections if your blisters are not taken care of properly. So if you notice a blister, it is definitely time to switch shoes and put on some protective gear. Behind me we got some lube and some skin protection we can help out with if you come here and don have that on your own,

” said Dr. Ashley Brown with Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

At the boot shop on Lower Broadway, blisters weren slowing country music fans down from purchasing a new pair of kicks.

“People fly into town, they come here right from the airport, come down and buy boots and then they drink and dance all day and then they wonder why their feet hurt,” said Donovan Nugent, the manager at Trail West.

Despite Echevarria blisters, she put her boots right back on after being treated for her injury.

James Rice was remodeling his residence at 2112 Seventh Street.

Farmer Leonard Barron had two fine mules stolen. A boy was seen with them crossing the Warrior River Bridge, riding one and leading the other. No trace was seen of them afterwards.

A prisoner escaped from the city prison by slipping by Mr. Whatley as he opened the door to bring supper to the prisoners and by some fast running. The prisoner was scantily clad and barefoot. The officer traced him in the soft earth until he came upon him hiding in some weeds.

Tuscaloosa representatives presented claims for the location of an armor plate plant to be located here. Judge Brandon was chairman of the committee that went to Washington. Miller. Three cities in Alabama were seeking the plant: Tuscaloosa Birmingham and Gadsden. It was hoped that Tuscaloosa’s location on the Warrior River would be a turning point in the location of the plant.

The Postal Telegraph Company announced that it would install a long distance line from Tuscaloosa to several points in North Alabama as well as to the Carolinas. The phone was to be for business purposes only and would be installed in the offices of business houses, whose business justified it.

Capt. McGee was back in Tuscaloosa to round up Warrior Guard soldiers that left without permission. One of them, Tom Hill, was charged with being a deserter. It was thought that Hill had had enough of being a soldier and had heard of maimed men being discharged and chose that way to get out of the Warrior Guard. After his five days of leave were over, Hill reported that he had shot his foot off. Hill would be charged with desertion.

Phillip Blondheim returned from a trip to New York where he bought a large stock of goods for his department store.

Dr. George H. Denny said the enrollment at the University of Alabama was the best in the history of the institution, but did not give numbers. After four days, 730 students had registered.

A black porter on the M railroad trains was arrested as a “blind tiger” when police found 21 half pints of booze in his baggage.

A Pike County Grand Jury was probing the death the previous week of Rev. Harrison,

a suspended Methodist minister. The widow and three little children, the father aged 80 years and “likewise a venerable mother,” already shocked by a recent bereavement, gathered in the little Harrison home. Harrison had been watching beside his wife in delicate health, trying to make a living for her and the children and at the same time prepare a defense against those who were trying to assassinate his character. Harrison was facing a trial by the Methodist Church when accused of impropriety with the church organist, Mrs. Will Trotter. Harrison was shot and killed instantly as he passed the Trotter house. Will Trotter and his brother in law Ed Athey were arrested. Harrison’s body was returned to Tuscaloosa County and interred in the Oregonia Cemetery. When rumors arose, Harrison, himself,

Designed by architect David Adjaye, the building pays homage to the intricate ironwork crafted by enslaved African Americans in Louisiana, South Carolina, and elsewhere.Inside its walls visitors journey from the horror of slavery to the inspiration of modern day heroes. Many prominent Black Americans are featured inside. But you’ll also find stories of the hidden history America, stories of those who are often forgotten, like Blind Tom Wiggins Greene.”Tom Wiggins was a piano, musical prodigy”, said Dwandalyn Reece, Curator of Music and Performing Arts at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.Born in 1856 in Columbus, Georgia, Thomas Wiggins was a slave, born blind with mental challenges.”He might have been autistic”, said Reece.The world came to know him as Blind Tom and he composed more than a thousand compositions. But he almost never played a single note. His owners thought his disabilities made him useless and wanted him killed.”He was unable to work in the fields or do any kind of hard labor,” Reece said.But his mother pleaded with Colonel James Bethune,
timberland footwear uk Blind prodigy almost never played a note
to buy her entire family to spare Blind Tom’s life. The colonel agreed and it turned out to be an act of compassion that would earn the Bethune family a fortune.Blind Tom had an encyclopedic memory and could mimic sounds.”He could master anything. Languages, sounds of animals. What Tom Wiggins was able to do was incorporate the sounds and everything he has heard and experience and put it in his own compositions,” said Reece.At the age of 3, while playing in the slave master’s house, Tom found a piano and played his first piece. By the age of 5 he was performing for audiences around the world.Inspired by his slave owner’s son describing the Confederate victory at Bull Run, Tom composed his most famous piece, “The Battle of Manassas.” In it, he used the ivories to dramatize the sound of the marching soldiers and the booming cannons.Whites at the time, thought Tom’s music was supporting the Confederate Army, other slaves thought he was a traitor.”There is an interesting relationship here that the music and what he is creating is benefiting the same system that’s oppressed him,” said Reece.The oppression of Tom kept going after slavery ended. Bethune made a deal with Tom’s mother. She got a place to live and a little money, while the Bethune’s kept control over Tom and his music.After more than 40 years on stage, Tom died in 1908 at the age of 59. Although hidden in history, his music still has an impact today.”Blind Tom laid the ground work for probably played off in jazz and jazz played off in hip hop. So there is a continuity of cultural tradition,

timberland shearling boots Bleached kraft mills cannot be closed loop

timberland safety boots Bleached kraft mills cannot be closed loop

In a perfect world, all manufacturing processes would have no appreciable impact on the environment. We all want this, but it is unrealistic to expect no impact. As with other industries, the Pulp and Paper sector has worked to improve its environmental footprint.

At Northern Pulp, the impact of effluent (wastewater) has been reduced by significant ongoing improvements dating back to the 1990s. Since taking over the Abercrombie mill in 2011, Northern Pulp has been making efforts to be as eco conscious as present technology allows. The disconnect for the public, however, seems to be the perception that simply creating a closed loop (zero effluent) system in the proposed new effluent treatment facility will solve all environmental issues, and that Northern Pulp is not willing to create such a system because of its hefty price tag. The reality is bleached Kraft mills (which is what Northern Pulp is) cannot be zero effluent. It is not a question of money, rather a result of current technology limitations.

There is a substantial difference between bleached and unbleached Kraft processes. Northern Pulp is a bleached Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) Kraft system, one that produces effluent streams that cannot be recycled in the process. The majority of effluent produced by the process comes from the bleach plant, which is why an open system is required.

Some unbleached Kraft mills can operate in a zero effluent configuration. An example is the Visy Tumut Kraft mill, New South Wales, Australia. This mill operates a closed loop system where all of the wastewater is land applied through irrigation for agriculture. In Canada, unbleached Kraft production represents less than 10 per cent of bleached Kraft production.

the mid 70s, the Great Lakes Paper Company in Thunder Bay, Ontario, attempted to install a closed loop system in its bleached Kraft pulp mill, Guy Martin, KSH Solutions explains. a number of issues, the process was abandoned.

Effluent options for pulp processes. Sponsored

Other bleached Kraft mills around the world have attempted, and failed, to implement closed loop systems since then. The difficulty stems from the buildup of chlorides and minerals in the pulping process. Chlorides originating from the bleaching process cause equipment corrosion, just as the same chlorides naturally occurring in seawater corrode metals. Calcium salts and other minerals are naturally present in both wood and water and lead to significant equipment scaling issues, as homeowners with hard water can attest.

are a few mills, such as Paper Excellence Meadow Lake Pulp Mill in Saskatchewan, that operate a Bleached Chemi Thermo Mechanical Pulp (BCTMP) mill with a closed loop effluent system. BCTMP is an entirely different pulping process, which provides a completely different product than that of a Kraft pulp mill, explains Martin.

BCTMP employs heat, mechanical action and a pre treatment with chemicals to separate cellulose fibers rather than chemically dissolving the lignin holding fibers in the wood matrix, such as Northern Pulp Kraft process. Because lignin is still present in mechanical pulp, it produces a weaker, lower grade of paper that yellows over time. Mechanical pulp bleaching is accomplished with hydrogen peroxide and/or sodium hydrosulfite. Two mechanical pulp processes were permanently closed in Nova Scotia in part due to the decline in newsprint markets (Bowater Liverpool and Port Hawkesbury PM1).

The addition of Oxygen Delignification to reduce bleaching chemicals by 30 to 40 per cent will have a very positive impact. The Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) guidelines stipulate that all effluent parameters should meet background concentrations of the receiving water in less than 100 metres from the outfall. As effluent has been flowing into the Northumberland Strait for 50 years without diffusion, the new treatment facility and diffused outfall will reduce impact on the Strait, according to Martin.

proposed new treatment system for Northern Pulp will be a modern Activated Sludge (AST) system that mills, industries and municipal facilities throughout the world have in place to treat wastewater, Martin says. This system will replace the current Aerated Stabilization Basin (ASB) technology.

timberland classic boots Blazers acquire another defenceman

cheap timberlands boots Blazers acquire another defenceman

In his first year as general manager of the Kamloops Blazers, Craig Bonner acquired WHL bantam draft picks as though they were going out of style.

Nowadays, he’s turned his attention to acquiring defencemen.

Bonner got defenceman Bronson Maschmeyer from the Vancouver Giants on Thursday in exchange for a third round pick in the 2010 bantam draft. Maschmeyer , an 18 year oldfrom Bruderheim, Alta., is expected to join the Blazers before tonight’s game against the Chilliwack Bruins (7 o’clock, Interior Savings Centre), but whether he will dress has yet to be decided.

The move leaves the Blazers with 11 defencemen nine of whom have WHL experience two weeks before the regular season is scheduled to start.

Bonner said despite having quantity on the blue line, he wasn’t pleased with the overall quality.

“After watching our team play three exhibition games, I wasn’t totally comfortable that we had a puck moving guy back there,” Bonner said. “Bronson, through talking to Vancouver, became available and it was something I thought we had to jump at.”

Maschmeyer joins returning defencemen Giffen Nyren, Josh Caron, Curtis Kulchar, Linden Saip, Zak Stebner, Kurt Torbohm and Brandon Underwood, along with former Prince George Cougars blueliner Matt Cumming, who is with the team on a tryout basis.

Although he is only 5 foot 10 and 170 points, Bonner feels Maschmeyer will fill an important role for the Blazers.

“I thought we needed a puck moving guy, and he’s a guy who could possibly play for us for three years,” Bonner said. “It was an intriguing deal for me and giving up a draft pick was an easy thing to do.”

This move, Bonner said, doesn’t mean that the Blazers’ current puck moving defenceman, Nyren, should start packing his bags. Nyren led Kamloops defencemen with 11 goals and 46 points last season.

“With the way the game is, I think you can’t just have one (puck moving defenceman),” Bonner said. “I think you need guys who can move the puck, and to have one,
timberland classic boots Blazers acquire another defenceman
I don’t think that’s enough.”

Bonner wouldn’t come out and say that further trades are imminent, but . . .

“Since training camp, there have been some guys we’re really happy with . . . and some guys who haven’t been as good as we had hoped,” he said. “We talked all along about creating some competition for positions, and we have lots of players here . . .”

This is the fifth move in a little more than a year between Bonner and his brother, Scott Bonner, the Giants’ GM.

Craig Bonner, who worked as the Giants’ assistant GM before signing with Kamloops, said he feels more comfortable trading for players he knows.

“Scott and I have made a lot of deals, but, for me, I know what I’m getting with these guys,” he said. “I’ve worked with them.”

p p p

The other trades between the Bonners were:

l Kamloops traded D Nick Ross and F Alex Rodgers to the Giants for Kulchar, third and fourth round picks in the 2009 bantam draft and a second round selection in 2010;

l Kamloops got Saip for a seventh round 2009 draft pick;

l The Blazers acquired F Sahir Gill from the Giants for a conditional second round pick in the 2010 bantam draft. If Gill, who played with the BCHL’s Vernon Vipers last season, plays for the Blazers, the Giants will get the pick. So far, Gill has not signed with Kamloops;

l Kamloops got F Brett Lyon from Vancouver for a sixth round pick in 2010.

p p p

In his first game not wearing a full facemask, Blazers forward Dylan Willick took a high stick and needed five stitches to close a cut on his chin.

The next game, he scored a goal. The game after that, he scored another.

If this keeps up, Willick, who was listed in March, is going to play his way into a spot on the Blazers’ roster.

“I try to be energetic and get the team energized along with that,” said Willick after the Blazers 3 2 victory over the Giants at ISC on Saturday. “Hopefully if I can get the team going, it can get me going too.”

Willick, a Prince George native who is to turn 17 on Oct. 19,
timberland classic boots Blazers acquire another defenceman
has two goals in three preseason games. He scored a shorthanded marker on Saturday and a power play goal in Kamloops’ 6 3 loss to the Bruins in Hope on Wednesday.
