first_imgAlgae Bloom In Laurel LakeHealth officials have asked residents not to swim or wade in Laurel Lake in Laurel after Stony Brook University confirmed the presence of a new cyanobacteria bloom, more commonly known as blue-green algae, in the waters.Blue-green algae are naturally present in lakes and streams in low numbers, but can become abundant and form blooms in shades of green, blue-green, yellow, brown, or red, which will produce floating scums on the surface of water or cause the water to take on paint-like appearance. Contact with waters that appear scummy or discolored should be avoided.If contact does occur, rinse off with clean water immediately, and seek medical attention if any of the following symptoms occur after contact: nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea; skin, eye, or throat irritation, allergic reactions, or breathing difficulties.Riverhead Park UpgradesRiverhead Supervisor Laura Jens-Smith announced on June 6 that the town would invest $250,000 in park upgrades.Projects that will be funded include the Police Officers Memorial Park tennis court, the Reeves Beach restroom facilities, and the Stotzky Park handball court, as well as playground equipment.

JH Kemp uses Enerpac gantry in ex-press move

first_imgThe press was being relocated within the same building, so JH Kemp used the Enerpac SL400 gantry to move the machine without dismantling and reassembling it. This saved the client – Salop Design & Engineering, a metal pressings and assemblies manufacturer in Telford, UK – three weeks’ downtime.JH Kemp said: “After some preparatory work involving removal of the press feed conveyors, a minimum amount of guarding, floor plates around the press and bolts holding the press in position, the press in its entirety was lifted off the its foundations using the gantry. It was then moved along the gantry tracks to its new position in the press shop.“Once in line with the new position the Enerpac SL400 gantry was re-rigged and the press uplifted and placed on to the prepared press foundation.”www.jhkemp.co.ukwww.enerpac.comlast_img read more

Ruggedized, Tactical GPS Time and Frequency System

first_imgSmiths Microwave announced that its subsidary TRAK Microwave has released a tactical GPS Time and Frequency System. The 8836 Series integrates a ground-based GPS receiver module (GB-GRAM), a rubidium oscillator, time and frequency signal generation, and control/status circuitry in a compact, ruggedized enclosure.Standard outputs include 1PPS, low noise 10 MHz Network Time Protocol (NTP) and two IRIG B outputs over multi-mode fiber. It can be synchronized from the internal GPS receiver or from an external GPS 1PPS. When tracking GPS with a TFOM of 3 or better, the discipline algorithm steers the internal oscillator providing 1 PPS time accuracy of < 30 nS to UTC and long term frequency stability of < 1E-12 averaged over 24 hours. In the absence of GPS the unit transitions into hold-over mode providing an accumulated time drift of < ± 2 µS in 24 hours. An Ethernet interface provides NTP, SNMP v1, v2 and v3, SSH, syslog and telnet. Three GPS Standard Serial Interface Protocol (GSSIP) ports are provided from the GB-GRAM. Two ports are configured to automatically output ICD-GPS-153 messages and the third port is configured to output NMEA-0183 messages.Click here to learn more abou the 8836 Series.last_img read more

That is happened on our Island. This is not what we would have wanted for anybody… As we bow our heads in prayer tonight, we remember Jordan Britten,” she said.The four day long search garnered thousands of supporters on social media pages dedicated to help find the Central Texas College student.  Several local law enforcement entities searched over land, sea and air before Britten’s body was found hidden in a marshy area near the resort.Several ceremony attendees shared prayers and poems to honor the 20 year old. “I feel like ever since the day this community found out that Jordan was missing, we all bonded together,” said Diane O’Leary, who attended the vigil with friends. “We all feel like we know him although most of us have never met the man. I just feel sorry for his mother, his stepfather and his family right now, but Jordan’s up there and he’s flying,” she saidBritten was hoping to become a pilot when he was older.Want the whole story?

We understand that sometimes people do have to clean them on the rivers and when they do that, just try to get those fish carcasses in a strong current.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Two immature brown bears have been seen near fishermen on the Kenai Peninsula, prompting a warning from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service… Matt Connors with the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge said the bears have been approaching fishermen near the Kenai and Russian River areas in Cooper Landing.
