If granted, the variance from the State public health order will allow Los Angeles County to advance further in Stage 2 and into Stage 3 of the State’s Roadmap to Recovery.“Los Angeles County has dedicated critical resources to meet the benchmark criteria to support our efforts to reopen, including ensuring adequate hospital capacity, increasing access and availability of testing and contact tracing, and implementing protections for vulnerable populations,” said Supervisor Barger. “Regional data shows we have flattened the curve, indicating our readiness to move forward in phased recovery. This will put Los Angeles County on a level playing field with surrounding counties, which have already been granted variances.”In addition, L.A. County will align with the Public Health Orders issued by the State to ensure consistency as the region progresses in reopening.“Aligning Los Angeles County’s health orders with the State’s is going to provide immediate relief to our communities,” Supervisor Barger said. “This important step will give our residents and businesses clarity as we continue to take positive steps toward reopening Los Angeles County.”These actions follow a series of phased reopening throughout Los Angeles County, including curbside retail, beaches, parks, trails and other open space. The County is moving toward additional phases in Stage 2 and into Stage 3 and will announce the immediate reopening of in-person shopping and houses of worship, and await the State’s clearance for re-opening in-person dining and personal care (hair salons and barbershops).“I fully support these efforts in our expediency to reopen businesses, reunite loved ones, and revitalize our neighborhoods,” Supervisor Barger said. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  13 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS First Heatwave Expected Next Week Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Man who ‘rushed’ San Diego synagogue shooter away tells his story

admin no comments

first_imgcarlballou/iStock(SAN DIEGO) — San Diego authorities are praising the courage of a 51-year-old man they say went after the suspected shooter at a synagogue over the weekend. A gunman wielding an assault-style rifle opened fire on members of the Chabad of Poway synagogue near San Diego during a Passover service Saturday, killing one person and wounding three others, including the rabbi and an 8-year-old girl.Local resident Oscar Stewart “rushed” at the alleged gunman inside the synagogue and chased after the suspect as he fled to a parked vehicle nearby, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Stewart caught up to the suspect as he got into the car and was about to drive away. An off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent, who is a member of the synagogue, also ran out and yelled for Stewart to stand back from the vehicle, allowing him to fire his weapon, per officials. The agent shot at the suspect’s car as he drove off. “Mr. Stewart risked his life to stop the shooter and saved lives in the process,” the sheriff’s department said in a statement Sunday.The suspect, identified as a 19-year-old man, was taken into custody moments later when a police canine officer on the way to the scene spotted him. The suspect jumped out of his car and put his hands up, according to San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit. The suspect was charged with one count of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder. He is scheduled to appear in a San Diego court Wednesday.A federal source with direct knowledge of the investigation told ABC News the suspect purchased the semi-automatic rifle in San Diego on Friday, the day before the shooting.Stewart, who lives in the Rancho Bernardo community in the northern hills of San Diego, said he normally sits in the front of the synagogue but decided to sit in the back on this particular day. “For some reason, I just got up before the Torah reading,” he told ABC San Diego affiliate KGTV-TV. “I just got up and I went to the back for no particular reason.”When he heard the first gunshots, Stewart said he ran toward the shooter and yelled at him. Stewart said the gunman looked at him before running out of the building. “When I shouted, they said that it sounded like four men shouting,” he told KGTV. “I don’t know if that was me or if that was an angel, if you believe in angels, or what made that noise.”Stewart said the Border Patrol agent also chased after the suspect and tried to immobilize his vehicle by shooting at the wheels. “When I came back into the building, I saw the rabbi, he was bleeding from his hands,” Stewart told KGTV. “I immediately went to the lady on the floor and started doing CPR on her. She didn’t make it.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Algophagus mites (Astigmata: Algophagidae) from the sub-Antarctic Prince Edward Islands: habitat-related morphology and taxonomic descriptions

admin no comments

first_imgFive populations of habitat-specific, morphologically distinct Algophagus mites (Astigmata: Algophagidae) were found to occur on the sub-Antarctic Prince Edward islands. Although these mites did not differ among themselves with respect to idiosomal setal characteristics, which were also similar to those of known sub-Antarctic Algophagus taxa, morphometric analyses revealed leg and idiosomal size differences. In addition to morphometric differences, leg setal positions and porose axillary organ structure, indicated that the morphotypes were taxonomically discrete. The taxa were found to include the known A. antarcticus Hughes, 1955, A. laticollaris Fain, 1974 (new status), a sub-species of A. semicollaris Fain, 1974, and two new species, A. brachytarsus sp. nov. and A. macrolithus sp. nov. With the exception of A. semicollaris, the taxa are described or redescribed in this paper. Morphological features of the females in particular, and notably leg proportions, claw dimensions, and apodeme positions, corroborate discrete terrestrial (A. brachytarsus and A. macrolithus) and aquatic forms (A. antarcticus, A. laticollaris, and A. semicollaris), and vary in a manner suggesting a functional relationship to habitat occupation by the various taxa.last_img read more

Guessing Game: Name the Organism that Inspired This Discovery

admin no comments

first_imgHere’s a quick brain teaser. Can you guess which biological organism inspired the scientific advance? Answers and sources below.(1) Better joints for robots.(2) New antibiotics.(3) Safe landings without a parachute.(4) Improved artificial intelligence.(5) Tandem wing airplanes.(6) Super strong, stretchy material.(7) Liquid-solid composites that are both flexible and strong.(8) Threads that don’t spin out of control.(9) Nanoscopic channels allowing controlled passage.(10) Cost-effective manufacture of structural colors.Answers:(1) The ostrich (Phys.org). “Ostriches are the only animals in the world to have a double-kneecap, but its purpose remains an evolutionary mystery. PhD student, Ms Sophie Regnault, from the Royal Veterinary College, UK says ‘understanding more about different kneecap configurations in different animals could help to inform prosthesis design, surgical interventions, and even robots with better joints.’”(2) Bacteria with Type IV pili (Phys.org). “According to Dr Vladimir Pelicic, from the MRC Centre for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection at Imperial, who led the research, TFPs are like a ‘Swiss Army Knife for bacteria’.”(3) Geckos (Phys.org). Finding the limit of adhesion when geckos fall and need to arrest their drop by clinging to a tree would be like “a skydiver reaching terminal velocity and then grabbing a support in mid-fall and stopping without using a parachute to slow down.”(4) The synapses in a human brain (Seeker). “By replicating the function of the human brain’s 100 trillion synapses, scientists hope to boost the versatility of artificial neural networks.”(5) Flying fish (Science Daily). The ribbon halfbeak lacks the pelvic fins of true flying fish, but still can fly above the water. “Investigating the design of ribbon halfbeak could provide useful information for the optimal design of tandem wing airplanes.”(6) Spider silk, of course (Science Daily). At the University of Cambridge, “Researchers have designed a super stretchy, strong and sustainable material that mimics the qualities of spider silk, and is ‘spun’ from a material that is 98 percent water.” See also separate article at Science Daily, and a paper in PNAS.(7) Disks in the human spine, or the skin in ocean-diving fish (Science Daily). “Materials scientists at Rice University are looking to nature — at the discs in human spines and the skin in ocean-diving fish, for example — for clues about designing materials with seemingly contradictory properties — flexibility and stiffness.”(8) Golden silk orb weaver spider (Phys.org). “The last time you watched a spider drop from the ceiling on a line of silk, it likely descended gracefully on its dragline instead of spiraling uncontrollably, because spider silk has an unusual ability to resist twisting forces.”(9) Cells with membrane channels called porins (Phys.org). “Proteins in lipid membranes are one of the fundamental building blocks of biological functionality,” the article begins. “Lawrence Livermore researchers have figured out how to mimic their role using carbon nanotube porins.”(1) Birds and butterflies (Phys.org). Pigments have their place, but structural colors have many advantages. The “photonic crystals” in bird feathers and butterfly wings have been hard to duplicate, this article says:Structural colors, on the other hand, produce color through nanostructures that reflect or scatter light. Feathers of birds and the scales of butterflies are two of the many examples of structural colors in nature. Furthermore. their structural spacings allow for the production of more distinct colors than is possible through pigments. However, despite the many advantages of structural colors in various applications, high fabrication costs and the inability to change a structural color once it has been applied has curtailed widespread implementation.Research conducted by Geunbae Lim, a professor with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), in collaboration with Taechang An, a professor with the Department of Mechanical Design Engineering at Andong National University, has successfully developed a new and cost-effective method for obtaining biomimetic structural colors with the ability to finely tune the completed structures. This achievement has been published in the world-renowned ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.(Visited 351 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Zika spread by sex too says Scientist

first_img CDC says: Men spread Zika through Sex Recommended for you Related Items:Mosquitoes, sex, zika virus Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 11 Jan 2015 – The Jamaica Observer is reporting that a German virologist believes the Zika virus, a mosquito-borne virus which is now being detected in the Caribbean can be sexually transmitted. Bernhard-Nocht is from the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Hamburg and in a 2015 medical report, the virologist suggests that the mosquito borne virus is detected in semen. It is the second time this pronouncement has come following research; the first was in 2008 when an American scientist contracted Zika Virus while in Senegal; a few days after returning home to Colorado, his wife was found with Zika. One view is that while Zika can be spread through sexual intercourse, which would also make it’s spread harder to control, it is likely this would NOT take over as the main route of transmission. Canada, three days ago, issued a warning to travelers about Zika, which has no vaccine. Turks and Caicos remains Zika free.

Army Issues RFP for Ft Campbell Solar Project

admin no comments

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Army last week released a request for proposals for a 3.1-megawatt solar array at Fort Campbell, Ky.The Army intends to procure a 27-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for the array through the renewable energy multiple award task order contract small business solar pool. That acquisition will be combined with a 10-year utility energy services contract with Pennyrile Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation, according to a press release from the Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville.Pennyrile will construct a 1.9-megawatt project, providing the post with a combined 5-megawatt solar array. The cooperative is using a $3 million grant from the commonwealth of Kentucky to supplement the cost of building its portion of the array. This is the first time the Huntsville Center’s energy division will use two third-party financing contract vehicles together for a renewable energy project, according to the release.In 2014, Fort Campbell received approval for an $800,000 federal energy management program AFFECT grant from the Energy Department that will be awarded to the developer selected for the PPA. The developer can use the funds to pay down the capital investment for the 3.1-megawatt array.The installation has identified 25 acres of land formerly used as a landfill for the photovoltaic array. The contractor will finance, design, build, operate, own and maintain the renewable energy generation facility on land leased from the Army.“We’re excited to finally get this project moving,” said Jim Duttweiler, Fort Campbell’s director of public works. “When complete, this project will provide more than 10 percent of Fort Campbell’s power requirements in the form of renewable energy and move us toward energy security and independence.” last_img read more
