Five police officers killed in Dallas, Texas during sniper attack
Posted by under Uncategorized

Sunday, July 10, 2016

On Thursday, five police officers were killed and seven were injured after a sniper attacked a public protest march in downtown Dallas, Texas. Sources indicate at least three other people were taken into custody for questioning relating to the attack. The march was held to protest the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota during engagements with police officers.

Police identified 25-year-old Micah Johnson as the suspect. Johnson had previously served in the US army, and police reported he said he wanted to exact revenge upon police officers after news of Sterling and Castile’s deaths. Ammunition and weapons were found inside Johnson’s home. Dallas Police reported the policemen were shot at from a height. Officials said two civilians were also injured in the attack.

Micah Johnson served for the United States Army Reserve from 2009 until early 2015, including a tour of Afghanistan. Johnson had no criminal record. His attack was reported to be a lone mission.

After the attack earlier on Thursday, police killed Micah Johnson in El Centro College’s parking lot by a bomb explosion.

Hillary Clinton, 2016 United States presidential election candidate and favorite for the Democratic nomination this July, said, “There is too much violence, too much hate, too much senseless killing, too many people dead who shouldn’t be. No-one has all the answers. We have to find them together.”

After Johnson was killed, Mike Rawlings, Dallas’ mayor, said “We believe now the city is safe”.

Chemical Analysis in the Contemporary laboratories

by

Tan Sean

The basic ideas behind several applications have remained quite similar, although the equipment used has grown much more sophisticated, for example, titration and gravimetry.

Gravimetry studies samples to determine the amount associated of an analyte present by measuring weight, with this feature being assessed before and after a procedure which causes a physical change in the sample for example, evaporation via heating.

Titration is another traditional method of chemical analysis which is conducted with examples of an analyte in a remedy to which a reactive material being added. The test continues until a point of equivalence has been reached, for example, in acid base titration with a pH indicator.

For Cross Section Analysis, consider the very best in the business. We offer top quality services at the most reasonable rates. Contact us today for more details about us.

If you are looking for Metallography related services, you have reached the right place. Visit us now and gather all the necessary information about the services we offer.

There are other types of trace and chemical analysis which are relatively modern innovations, having become possible with the introduction of new technologies and instruments which permit these methodologies. One such analytical technique is mass spectrometry.

That is an analytical method which decides the properties of analyte by using magnetic and or electric powered fields to gauge the mass to ask for ratio of molecules. There are many different chemical research methodologies which utilize mass spectrometry, differing in the sort of ionization produced. Metallography is also an effective procedure used these days.

Microscopy is another method of analysis which is becoming an extremely important element of the analytical process as microscopes have become ever more superior and powerful. The visible examination of specific molecules, particles and cells in biological samples has become a very beneficial part of analytical chemistry and trace analysis processes, both on their own as well as along with other analytical methods like SEM/EDS analysis.

Spectroscopy is an analytical method which is utilized to determine the properties of analytes in a sample based on a measurement of the interactions of the analyte with electromagnetic radiation. There is a wide range of spectroscopic techniques, the distinction between them being the part of the spectrum occupied by radiation used. There are spectroscopic methods and techniques designed to use x rays, infrared light, ultraviolet light, ultraviolet obvious light and many more, with some being specifically perfect for different chemical analysis applications.

Other technologies and techniques used in trace and SEM/EDS analysis and other varieties of analytical chemistry include crystallography; a qualitative research method which talks about the diffraction habits made by the conversation of the analyte with x rays, this technique is comparable to spectroscopy.

Thermal evaluation parting techniques including electrophoresis and chromatography and a number of electro analytical functions could also be used, with regards to the type of test being examined and the requirements of the analytical process.

A leak at the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing facility on Cumbrian coast, England

A leak at the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing facility on Cumbrian coast, England
Posted by under Uncategorized

Monday, May 9, 2005

At the Sellafield reprocessing plant, a leak in the process was spotted on April 19. The leak did not cause danger to people or the environment but it disturbed the normal operation of the plant.

Workers at the plant noticed a discrepancy in the amount of material being reprocessed that enters pipes that lead to a set of centrifuges and the amount of material actually arriving at the centrifuges. They used remote cameras to find the crack where the material was escaping; over twenty tonnes have leaked into a steel lined chamber.

The material, consisting of mostly uranium and some plutonium dissolved in nitric acid, would have been reprocessed in the centrifuges. The large stainless steel chamber that now contains the spilled material is too dangerous to enter due to radioactivity, though it poses no danger to those inside or outside the plant.

The plant has been shut down pending repairs.

Virginia takes action against Zebra Mussels in private pond

Virginia takes action against Zebra Mussels in private pond
Posted by under Uncategorized

Tuesday, January 31, 2006

In a first ever effort in the United States to eliminate the presence of Zebra mussels in a large body of water, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) announced on Monday that a private pond in Prince William County, Virginia is undergoing water treatment using a chemical potash of potassium chloride in concentrations high enough to kill invasive and native shellfish species.

The pond at the Millbrook Quarry will undergo treatment for three to four weeks in an effort to eliminate an infestation of zebra mussels, a condition of its waters that was confirmed by state environmental officials in 2002. The treatment is not expected to pose a threat to non-molluscan aquatic wildlife, vegetation, or land-dwelling creatures at the site. Officials expect the one-time treatment process will provide protection from the possibility of future infestation for 33 years.

The entire body of water will be treated with potassium chloride to a level of 90 ppm, well below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) standard of 250 ppm for potable water. There are no expected health risks for humans, or contamination of drinking water wells in the immediate vicinity.

The freshwater Zebra Mussel species is a threat to native mussels of the region because of their high reproduction rate and their ability to attach themselves in clusters to native mussels, which kills them since they are prevented from opening and closing their shells to feed or burrow. Bottom-dwelling marine species are often covered by the Zebra Mussel.

Measures to prevent the spread of zebra mussels vary by region where the species is present. In Maryland, boat owners who launch water craft on reservoirs that serve as sources of drinking water are required to register their boat for use only on those reservoirs, to reduce chances of the mussel being transferred from other waters. Drinking water treatment and power production facilities where the mussels are present must regularly treat their systems to keep them clear of decaying debris that fouls intake pipes.

Zebra mussels were first discovered in North America in 1988, in Lake Saint Clair, a lake between Lake Erie and Lake Huron. By 1990 they appeared in all of the Great Lakes. It is believed that the mussels were accidentally brought over from Europe on the hulls of ships.

Chris Reeve Knives Sebenza Review

Posted by under Financial Planners

By Todd Matsumoto

Chris Reeve Knives have an excellent reputation for overall quality. Their prices are a bit high but that hasn’t stopped customers from keeping these knives in short supply. I going to review one of the most popular lines from Chris Reeve Knives, the Sebenza.

Before going further, I’d like to give you quick rundown on the Chris Reeve story. Christopher Stanley Reeve was born on December 4, 1953 in Durban, South Africa. His profession was tool and die making.

As a youth, he raced motorcycles. Since he didn’t have corporate sponsors, much of the work on his bike was done by himself.

In 1989, he and his wife moved to Boise, ID so he could pursue more interesting business opportunities. His first knife was an all metal model that was resistant to climate change.

Now back to the Sebenza. The Sebenza has an integral side-lock design. This means that one side of the handle is used to lock the blade when it’s extended. In everyday use, I found this mechanism locked the blade in place like a bank vault. Compared to other, cheaper knives, the blade on the Chris Reeve felt solid like a fixed blade model.

The blade is made out of state of the art S30V that has been stonewashed. This steel has great edge holding abilities and the finish is well suited for this type of steel. Be very careful when you first get your Sebenza. The blade has been thoroughly sharpened at the factory and it’s very sharp. It’s much sharper than some of the other production folders that I’ve received.

The handle is made out of bead blasted titanium. It feels really comfortable in my hand and I have no fears of this handle slipping out of my hand. This knife has a tip up design. This means that when have your knife clipped to your pocket, the tip of the blade will be pointed up. Many people prefer this method because they feel they can access the knife quicker. But in the end, it’s all a matter of personal preference. There’s no right or wrong way.

In addition, a lanyard is attached at the end of the handle. Some lanyard snobs might scoff at this particular design but I found it made removing the knife from my pocket a little bit easier.

The action of the blade moving out of the handle was silky smooth. You don’t want it so smooth that it opens up while it’s still in your pocket. The Sebenza is easy to access without becoming a safety hazard. You can thank the phosphor-bronze washers for doing their job.

When you get your Sebenza, it will come in a white box with the Chris Reeve Sticker. Inside will be your knife, a certificate, and an allen wrench so you can disassemble your knife for cleaning and lubing.

Overall, this is great folding knife. Technically, it’s a production folding knife but the quality matches that of any fine custom folder. The model I reviewed was the large left handed model with dual blue thumb lugs. There are numerous different models available. Some have complicated graphics and others have exotic inlays in the handle. If your tastes include damascus blades, Chris Reeve offers that option as well. If you’re interested in a knife that’s highly functional and beautiful, the Chris Reeve Sebenza will do the job rather nicely.

Obama renominates Bernanke as US central banker

Obama renominates Bernanke as US central banker
Posted by under Uncategorized

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

United States President Barack Obama announced on Tuesday that he is nominating Ben Bernanke for a second term as Chairman of the Federal Reserve, the central bank of the United States.

Obama made the announcement during a brief break from his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts.

“The man next to me, Ben Bernanke, has led the Fed through one of the worst financial crises that this nation and the world has ever faced. As an expert on the causes of the Great Depression, I’m sure Ben never imagined that he would be part of a team responsible for preventing another. But because of his background, his temperament, his courage, and his creativity, that’s exactly what he has helped to achieve. And that is why I am re-appointing him to another term as Chairman of the Federal Reserve,” the President said.

Ben approached a financial system on the verge of collapse with calm and wisdom

“Ben approached a financial system on the verge of collapse with calm and wisdom; with bold action and outside-the-box thinking that has helped put the brakes on our economic freefall,” Obama added.

“We have been bold or deliberate as circumstances demanded, but our objective remains constant: to restore a more stable economic and financial environment in which opportunity can again flourish, and in which Americans’ hard work and creativity can receive their proper rewards,” Ben Bernanke said while accepting the nomination.

Ben Bernanke, who succeeded Alan Greenspan on February 1, 2006, will now face a Senate confirmation hearing.

“There will be a thorough and comprehensive confirmation hearing,” said Senator Christopher Dodd, who is the chair of the Senate Banking Committee. “I expect many serious questions will be raised about the role of the Federal Reserve moving forward and what authorities it should and should not have.”

“I am extremely pleased to learn that Ben Bernanke has been nominated for a second term as chairman of the Federal Reserve,” read a statement by Jean-Claude Trichet, the President of the European Central Bank. “We have had an excellent and very close working relationship during the current episode of exceptional challenges for the world economy. The Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank have, together with other central banks, initiated an unprecedented level of close cooperation, which has been key in coping with the present situation.”

Commonwealth Bank of Australia CEO apologies for financial planning scandal
Posted by under Uncategorized

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Ian Narev, the CEO of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, this morning “unreservedly” apologised to clients who lost money in a scandal involving the bank’s financial planning services arm.

Last week, a Senate enquiry found financial advisers from the Commonwealth Bank had made high-risk investments of clients’ money without the clients’ permission, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars lost. The Senate enquiry called for a Royal Commission into the bank, and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Narev stated the bank’s performance in providing financial advice was “unacceptable”, and the bank was launching a scheme to compensate clients who lost money due to the planners’ actions.

In a statement Mr Narev said, “Poor advice provided by some of our advisers between 2003 and 2012 caused financial loss and distress and I am truly sorry for that. […] There have been changes in management, structure and culture. We have also invested in new systems, implemented new processes, enhanced adviser supervision and improved training.”

An investigation by Fairfax Media instigated the Senate inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank’s financial planning division and ASIC.

Whistleblower Jeff Morris, who reported the misconduct of the bank to ASIC six years ago, said in an article for The Sydney Morning Herald that neither the bank nor ASIC should be in control of the compensation program.
